Sorry to hear no nibbles on your house.

We had a beautiful day. I spent time out in the barn with the sheep. No more lambs yet.

I also quilted one of my kids quilts this afternoon. I have two more ready to quilt and I got the backs for three more today. I also got the wool batting and backing for my two sheep quilts. So lots of quilting to do.

Have a great Sunday.

DD and I are in Chattanooga so she can take a licensing exam. Decided to make a weekend of it and do some shopping and just hang out. It has been a long time since we have done it.

Ginny, sorry there haven't been any nibbles. Real estate is very slow in our area, too. Don't get discouraged.

24 pounds down - 1 more pound to get to my May 15th goal. Definitely doable.

Still no nibbles on our house.

It was a busy day w/ DD & then went to dinner tonight w/ DH. We ran a few errands afterwards, so this is the first I've checked in all day. -- The weather for the weekend here is supposed to be sunny, windy & maybe the high 70's. I have several things "to do" planned.
* planning to get back on track w/ exercise (sprained ankle improved)
* stop at the fabric store
* cut squares for quilt
* get gifts ready for upcoming college graduations (2)
* work on meals again (a never-ending reality)

Julie, it sounds like you have a really good ewe there. I am glad the lambs are doing well.
Today I was at the quilt store to substitute some fabrics in a kit I bought. Changed my mind when I saw other options and I think I will go with what I had. I did buy some fabric however, just in case. lol

The breed of sheep we have is Polypay. Twins and triplets are common and quads are not unusual. So far mom is able to take care of them on her own. We are watching and making sure the babies are gaining weight and they all are nursing. Last night the babies totaled 26 lbs. the smallest was 5.5 lbs, the largest was 8.5 lbs. Keeping mom well feed will also help with her milk production. This is her third lambing. She had a single boy the first year, twin boys the second year and now the quads.

Julie, the babies are delightful. I am glad they are all doing well. Can the mother manage to feed them all or do you have to help?
I am off to start in my garden with raking the grass. A little cooler today but I like this time of year with no black flies or mosquitoes!!

Our lambs are starting to arrive. Our ewe Annabelle had quadruplets, three boys and a girl. They all seem to be doing well. Abby is showing signs so we may have more babies tomorrow.

I will get some pictures posted tomorrow.

Good luck with your open house this weekend. Been there! Someone will come and just love it! It must be hard to have to pack away your quilting. I hadn't started yet when I moved. Congratulations on your weight loss. You must be feeling so much healthier.
Presently I am very happy to be packing for a retreat at the end of the month.

Another open house planned this weekend. We just need 1 person to give us a decent offer. This is frustrating but we do have time. I am not patient and want it over.

Otherwise I'm doing well. Down 22 pounds so far this year. Quilting is on hold for the most part during the house showings so I've been looking at others and stocking up on ideas to do for when I can bring the sewing machine back out.

My knee just won't take running anymore. Cycling is much easier on it, so I'll stick to that.

Our dogwoods are blooming and that is one of my bit allergens. I'll be so glad when the trees stop pollinating.

I am so sorry for all the losses we have suffered the past week. Holidays can be difficult.

We spent the weekend at my parent's and went to Easter service with them. They attend a very small country church, and it was packed today. It was nice to see.

The weather has been "spring-like" with a nice sprinkling of both rain & sun.

But the morning of Good Friday, we lost a beloved family member--which will be especially difficult for teen daughter. (She told me that when she was little, she thought Grandpa would live forever. I told her, as she cried, that he will...but just not with us right now.)

So it is with great emotion that we celebrate that he is now pain-free and celebrating Easter with the King of Kings!

We spent the day helping friends move. I am tired from carrying boxes up and then down the stairs.

We took the plunge and bought our new car last night. We have been researching on line and test drove several cars but decided to go with comfort and got a dark blue 2015 Honda Pilot. I liked the way it handled the best of the cars we test drove.

Have a wonderful Easter!

The thunderstorms and hail passed just north of us. We got just a sprinkle.

How wonderful to share your music with friends. I took guitar lessons and my teacher quit, just not musically inclined. But love to listen.

Despite storms yesterday (2 inches of hail in some places) we had a lovely day today. DH had to work till 1, but we got a short bike ride in this afternoon and walked the dog. Got to sit out on the porch swing after dinner (till the mosquito's ran us in). It was a good day.

I had a pretty good day at work today. It is beautiful but windy here. Because of my work out I get to work early so I left early. DH had the day off. I got home to help feed the sheep. They are starting to get big. We should have lambs by the end of the month.

Julie, even if you are bringing up the rear you are off the couch. Keep it up, you can do it.

Today was a strange day. We got our bike ride in this morning, but this afternoon DH would get his tools out, it would thunder. Put them away, sun comes out. Gets the tools, thunder... Finally gave up and took the dog for a walk.

Today was a nice day.

I started a couch to 5K program at work today. We will meet twice a week with a workout on our own over the weekend. I was bringing up the rear like I expected to.

Have a good evening!

We had about a dozen people come to our open house. Most were first time lookers so they are just starting the process. We did have 2 looking for follow ups.

One coming over at 4:30 today - keep your fingers crossed. Please

We had early morning thunderstorms, but after lunch it cleared up and turned out to be a beautiful day. Tomorrow is supposed to be the opposite, nice morning, stormy afternoon. Good for sewing.

How did it go, Ginny? Hope you had lots of folks at the open house.

It was cool here, but not wet, so the grands got to play outside, and we took an extra long walk this morning.

The frogs have been serenading us, too. Today there were over 50 turtles sunning around the lake. Spring can't be far behind.

It was too cool for a bike ride today, so just got the dog walk in. Learned a new word today, graupel. Seems it is a cross of snow and hail, and we got some. Looked like sleet to me, but what do I know.

Frogs are singing... Spring is here! emoticon

Today did NOT play out as intended (as usual), and unfortunately, exercise failed to happen.
I had 8 stops to make & that takes time! -- One stop ended up with an hour-long evaluation, and I ordered inserts & new walking shoes. Hopefully, it will help me with my walks...so my feet, legs, hips don't hurt as much.
I stopped at the fabric store & picked up some material for quilt backs. -- It's also time for me to try out my new machine!

Enjoy your weekend, ladies!

Our weather is warming a bit. The sandhill cranes that nest in the marsh behind us are back. I haven't seen them but have been hearing them.

I had the day off today so have been relaxing and doing some house cleaning. I cleaned and rearranged the furniture in the living room.

We have our last night of bowling tonight.

Looking forward to the weekend.

I"ve been taking Svaropa yoga classes for a year and a half. They have made a huge difference in the management of my back issues. Not sure of the spelling but this type of yoga has you lying on the floor for about an hour and a half and occasionally sitting up, lunging while kneeling and other assorted stretching exercises. Good for old bodies. Tonight is yoga night! So relaxing! Carol

I was blessed with being able to get a therapeutic massage on Wed. I wish I knew what was causing so much muscle pain and tension. -- I feel stuck between a "rock & a hard place" in knowing what exercise(s) to do or not do??? What helps and what makes it worse???

My chiropractor has indicated that it is in fact the muscles pulling things out of alignment and causing me grief in general. I have numerous imbalances and "issues" of "age" (but I still feel too "young" to have these aches & pains!) -- I'm sure my excess weight exacerbates the situation.

Carol, that was a wake up call. Glad no one was hurt.

We sorted the old wood from the little deck we are rebuilding. Hubby took the pieces apart, the grands pulled the nails out and I carried the non usable boards to the street for pick up. Does that count as strength training?

So I went shopping today for some new clothing, spent a bunch of money and was pleased with myself. However, when I got into the car, I did not even look and pulled right in front of oncoming traffic. Luckily no one hit me and I didn't cause an accident but how embarrassing. A wake up call to remind myself to pay attention. I'm usually a careful driver but my mind wasn't on it I guess. Carol

The house goes on the market today. So time to get nervous. Hopefully we'll get some good offers even considering we still have so much snow still on the lawn.

I had a great weekend of sewing. I finished three quilt tops for our guilds "Quilts for Kids" charity program. I think I have seven tops now, so need to start doing some quilting.

I also finished putting borders on one of my sheep quilts.

Have a great week!

We only have a small flock of 6 ewes and a ram, for a total of seven. It only took the shearer 30 minute last year with 4 sheep, We figure it will be about an hour this afternoon.

I will post before, during and after picture later.

Have a great afternoon. I am going to get some sewing time in.

We had another nice day but not as warm as yesterday.

We set up a table to put the fleeces on when we have the sheep sheared tomorrow, I will go through them and pull the vegetable matter and cut out the bad areas before I take them into the woolen mill to have then cleaned and made into roving.

I am going go get some sewing time in. I don't get much time during the week but I am going to work on my sheep quilt.

Have a great evening.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Instead of going to England in July, we are crusing from Quebec to Boston in the maritime provinces! Always wanted to do this! Something to look forward to! Carol

Pursue the things that make you feel alive and fill you with joy and balance.!
